Speaker 1:                           00:00                     Amazing life changing conference and now we just have to get people there. The movement video up a little bit. Oops. Okay.

Speaker 1:                           00:16                     The lesson that I want to talk about today is a very foundational principle and it’s how you view your conference and how much priority you’re going to put on getting people to your conference. Cause I promise you if you make it a top priority and a main focus, you’ll see more people going to your conference. So hopefully your conference is worth getting people to and accomplishes your mission statement. Several years ago we would tell people about our conference, we would do a video at our large group meeting and we just trusted that whoever wanted to go and sign up. Well we noticed that the more people that went to our conference, they were more likely to come to Christ and more likely to get involved with ministry in the air or actually become a labor. Uh, and we could reach more people cause it was such an impactful four days.

Speaker 1:                           01:08                     So we said, ah, let’s put more of a priority on it and make it more of a focus and a goal. And the next thing you know, we had more people sign up. So when my wife and I launched out, uh, to start our ministry under the same umbrella as the old, as our parent organization, we said, let’s make this our focus. Let’s make this our main goal. So everything we do this fall is going to be centered towards getting people to this conference. Uh, so whenever we made this priority and made this switch, uh, we had to think back and okay, what do we have to do to get people there? Well, we have to meet people. We have to build trust with them. We have to meet up with them one-to-one and get in the Bible together. We have to get them to a small group. Maybe, uh, we might have to go speak to their pledge class and do a leadership meeting to build a little more trust with that guy or that group of guys. What might have to do a relationship study. Uh, we might have to get this guy or this group of guys to our large group meeting and we might have to make a really good, uh, video, uh, to that explains our conference. That’ll help them understand, well, basically everything that was already our job description

Men want to stop looking at porn, or overcoming porn or masturbation, because they know that looking at porn and mastrubating  can be a bad habit. They things like joining the no fap movement (nofap), covenant eyes, xxx church (xxxchurch), the freedom fight, pure desire, 7 pillars,  the conquer series, the endurance, 30 day challenge, fight the new drug, or a counselor. Sometimes these help guys with purity but sometimes it does not. 

Speaker 1:                           02:32                     we had to do. So we just now did it with a purpose, which was to get people to our conference. And now then we did all of those tasks that we are already doing. But with this longterm goal of building, uh, getting this person to the point where they’ll sign up for our conference and actually go, um, it, it changed everything we did and we, everything we did was filtered through that. So a couple of years ago, we were trying to think of like a really fun event and we came up with this idea of doing a concert on campus with the singer and it was gonna be a lot of work. But man, this thing was going to be really fun. But at the end of the day we said, this is going to take so much time and energy. And I don’t think it’s really going to get that many more people to our conference so we’re not going to do it.

Speaker 1:                           03:18                     And I’m so glad because why would we put all this time and energy into something that was not going to get people to the main thing that we’re, we’re recruiting people to. Uh, so if you guys do this, you will see more people sign up for your conference cause you’re thinking about it. Um, now the pushback would be, uh, you know, how do you determine if you’re successful or not? You can’t just judge by the numbers cause you can’t control what people are going to sign up. But I absolutely agree. You might do all the right things and nobody goes or you might do all the right things and that one guy or a pledge class doesn’t go that year. Uh, and you have to be okay with that. I was completely okay with that. Uh, I was willing to take that risk and I was willing to fail.

Speaker 1:                           04:06                     Uh, at the end of the day, you just have to leave it in the Lord’s hands. We did everything we could. The whole reason we’re recruiting you. This conference is not, that’s not the endowment beyond, it’s, uh, it’s ultimately for God’s glory into, so that was the reason I felt creative out recruiting dark conference because I knew the reason that we work. Uh, so I highly, highly recommend for you personally or for your staff team to really think through making this the main thing you’re doing in the false, you can filter all the decisions through that. All right. Leave your comments below. Let me know how this is working out for you guys.

If any guy is interested in stopping porn or masturbating they should get some help.  They can look at the no fap movement ( nofap ), covenant eyes, xxx church (xxxchurch), the freedom fight, pure desire, 7 pillars,  the conquer series, and fight the new drug or try to see a counselor. The Endurance would love to help guys. A great start to overcoming porn and masturbation is to take the 30 day challenge.  Go to theendurance.org/30daychallenge to take it.
